Baby's first Carrots and Parsnips - Homemade Baby Food

 Carrots and Parsnips go very well together. They offer calcium, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, beta carotene and some fiber and protein too. Incidentally, This makes an awesome vegetable side dish for the adults too, before pureeing that is.
equal amounts Organic Carrots and Parsnips
2 tablespoons olive oil

1. Peel Parsnips with vegetable peeler, dice carrots and parsnips into equal size cubes. Spread on baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat with your hands. Bake at 400'F for 20-40 minutes or until fork tender.
2. Place roasted vegetables in food processor, add water 1/2 cup at a time (~2-2.5 cups total) and puree until smooth.  Freeze in ice cube trays.

NOTE: When preparing baby's food, it's nice to be able to combine several different things, when you freeze the food in cubes you can add one sweet potato, one carrot/parsnip, one chicken/rice and one green bean, the possibilities and flavors are endless.  Go ahead...broaden your baby's palate!
